Fatality in Yardley

Monday 21st August 2017 – 10.00am – Claire Brown.

Sometimes it’s just not possible to save a life. This was tragically the case faced by ambulance staff at the scene of a collision in Yardley yesterday.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called to near the Holiday Inn on the Coventry Road, Yardley, Birmingham in the early hours of Sunday morning (4.49am). Two ambulances and a paramedic officer attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “When ambulance staff arrived they found a car which had been involved in a significant collision with a lamppost. The driver and single occupant of the car, a man, was out of the vehicle and had suffered multiple injuries. Sadly, it quickly became apparent to ambulance crews that nothing could be done to save the man and he was confirmed dead on scene.”
